You can prioritize giving in your budget.
The Bible indicates giving is to be a “first” and not a last or leftover matter in our lives. Read Proverbs 3:9-10. It is easy to let our standards and intentions be compromised by the press of expenses and billing cycles.
You can increase your faithfulness.
Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home or pledged to double it in the future? Have you had times where you have fallen behind because of travel and other schedule interruptions? Online giving provides a way to strengthen your faithfulness.
You can help your church.
Through online giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting, and strengthen our base of regular support.
You can encourage faith and faithfulness in the lives of fellow believers.
As you plan and prioritize your giving, you will lead the way for others to grow and mature in their spiritual stewardship. Being a forerunner in this new area of planned giving, you can provide personal testimony and example for others to follow.
Missions are a strong part of Wedgwood. Wedgwood does missions a little different than most churches. We have a separate budget for missions which we call “Love Offering For Jesus,” or LOFJ for short. It allows individuals to give monthly to help them better budget what God has led them to give toward missions, and to help the church support missions throughout the year. Wedgwood supports Lottie Moon, Annie Armstrong, and state missions through LOFJ. We also support former Wedgwood family whom God calls to serve as missionaries, both short term as well as career.
LOFJ has allowed Wedgwood to sponsor trips to six of the seven continents, and over 50 countries, several more than once. We have sent several thousand people and given several million dollars to support missions around the world.
Wedgwood has sent missionaries as far south as Australia and as far north as Alaska. We have sent missionaries to the Ukraine, Romania, and Russia in the former communist bloc, France, Spain, and Wales in Europe, Swaziland, Senegal, and Algeria in Africa, and Brazil, Peru, and Venezuela in South America. Wedgwood family have also shared Christ in China, India, Malaysia, and Madagascar, and many other places in the world.
We have an ongoing missions work in Ethi0pia, Alaska and Wales where we partner with churches and missionaries on the field to reach the people of these countries. The LOFJ offerings also support former Wedgwood Family wnow serving overseas. Between Wedgwood members on short term trips, and former members serving as career missionaries, Wedgwood has shared Christ in 55 countries.
At Wedgwood we also believe missions starts at home. LOFJ supports many local ministries such as Union Gospel Mission, Beautiful Feet, Pregnancy Lifeline, and the Gideon’s.
Wedgwood believes missions are an important part of what God has called us to do.
